I'm not quite sure if I'm understanding this right. I had a circuit (which I can't share) given me. In the parts list one of the components is "10nF ceramic, 0.1” pitch leads " (this parts list is very old maybe 2005.) Is this capacitor a ceramic disc or MLCC leaded?

If something from 2005 is very old, I start to feel ancient...

Given the scant specification, the component is likely non-critical. I'd avoid class III dielectrics, which should be avoided like the plague anyway, and choose any class II (e.g. the common X7R) MLCC with that capacitance and that pitch.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Settasak They have much larger volume, and I doubt you can find a 10 nF disc capacitor with that pitch. And if there is, it's likely a class III dielectric, which has very poor dielectric properties. \$\endgroup\$ Apr 23, 2023 at 19:21
  • \$\begingroup\$ i had to redesign this pcb anyway so i will go with mlcc, thank you \$\endgroup\$

enter image description here

I went to digikey.com and searched for capacitors. ceramic, through hole, lead spacing 0.1" and found many many options.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I've been googling for the past hours but i'm not quite sure for the type, when i try searcing with that word it either give me mlcc leaded or disc ,but answer from Massimo Ortolano is clear and i understand now, thank you \$\endgroup\$
